    BETHESDA, MD — A man being sought by police for attacking people on the Capital Crescent Trail assaulted several college students posting signs for George Floyd, one of the victims told Patch.

    The incident occurred around 12:45 p.m. on Monday.


    "He was just cycling down the trail," one of the victims, who wished to remain anonymous, said. "He videoed us on his first pass by, then stopped about 50 feet passed us and asked to see my signs, in a friendly tone. When I went to show him the signs he ripped them out of my hands and then started to go after my friends. That's when I started recording."

    The video has been posted on Reddit, garnering more than 57,000 upvotes from users.

    In the video, the man can be seen trying to yank a roll of tape off a woman's arm before using his bicycle to charge at the man who is filming.

    The victim recording the incident said the man tried pinning him to the ground with his bike

    Maybe the police can take a break from kneeling on unarmed people's necks and instead arrest this man and charge him with assault, that would be great

    He should be arrested for dressing like that.

    Holy shit! That certainly looks exactly like him. Yikes. Fire his ass (edit - he's retired).

    Maybe it is. But There's so many of those things 'this guy looks like that guy ...' that turn out to be false.

    For sure. It does look like him, but lots of folks look like other folks.

    Hmmm. If I find anything out that disproves this, I'll update this this post.


    EDIT: The guy was misidentified, so I have removed his pic.

    He kind of looks like a less reasonable version of the T-1000

    Twitter detectives are something else ... people are looking at Strava ... a service bikers use to track their rides.

    This is a pic of the man that matches up with the Strava ride, according to the poster.

    He's not giving a name ... might not be a real name associated with the account, anyway ... hopefully that user has passed the info on to the cops. Could possibly find him based on the starting point of the ride, if he started logging at his home.

    Although there is no doubt that the guy is a royal a-hole and should be prosecuted (by the way, I have ridden on that bike path) the title of the thread is really misleading. When I read it I thought that the "kids" referenced in the title were children not college students.

    Saw this last night. Dude was definitely unhinged. Hopefully he gets caught.

    Robbery. He took property away from the young girl by force and aggravated battery if he struck the guy with the bicycle.

    One guy accused on Twitter has been cleared ... this *might* be the Strava user I referenced above.

    The one he robbed was a child.
